The gallery in LA told me that she will not exhibit anymore. And that's one thing.
She wrote to me, apologizing for everything.
On facebook page of Dorothy Circus Gallery they credited me on the piece by Elena Cermaria.
Don't know... something happened, something is changing but i'm still so angry...
Look what ~Cretone
did! And a huge thanks because he discovered and advised everyone about this fact.
Here what happened today.
A really kind person contacted me about my artworks stolen by an italian artist. Her name is ELENA CERMARIA and she paints using other photographers' artworks, as yours, selling them and exhibiting them in art galleries in Rome and LA as well.
Besides the fact this is an awful behaviour, it's dishonorable in each sense. How people like this exist? What's their problem?
This is italian artist Elena Cermaria showcased such paintings
(and sold them) both at Mondo Bizzarro Gallery (Rome), and at other galleries in the USA.
She has never declared she used photo references and has always claimed her work as original. She
has already sold quite a few pieces and she is getting increasing attention, both in Italy and in the USA.
She is actually showing with two of the most influential galleries of the scene, namely: La Luz de Jesus
gallery in Los Angeles (laluzdejesus.com/) and Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome (www.dorothycircusgallery.com/)
I don't want to destroy her career, but this thing MUST come out!
Here my photos reproduced by her: www.google.it/imgres?um=1&…
I also found she stole also other artists works, like hers : ~vampire-zombie
(take a look: www.google.it/imgres?um=1&…
I just wanted to make this fact publish, so everyone knows about her.
Please, take a look to other artworks from her, you might recognize your of others original photos.
Art Stealing must be fight!
